    I have the same problem. One of the decks (SL1210 MKII) it spins really fast. The pitch and speed controls make no difference. I used to be able to stop it by switching the deck off and on again and after a while it worked but not any more, it just speeds up and doesn't slow down unless I press the Stop button.

You both have issues with your drive circuits. There is no easy fix for this. You will have to take it to a repair center to have them serviced.

There are 4 main Integrated Circuits that control the speed/drive and any one or all may have gone bad. We are seeing this alot with these units now.

Wish I could be of more help.

Why is the right side of my Technics turntable dropping out and giving me a ground hum?


It sounds like a bad connection to the cartridge, perhaps even the cartridge itself.

A 303 cassette deck - the belt has been changed. The feed spool and capstan turn fine. The take up spool does not turn and play stops after 5 sec. Take up spool is fine in fast forward. Help !


This is a case of a failing reel motor. What happens i sthe brushes become aged and wear down and the motor has what they call a dead spot on the Commutator. The motor will work fine at high speeds as the inertia is working for it but when you use a slow speed as in play mode the motor hits the dead spot and stops. You will need a new reel motor in the most likely case- I can service the deck if you want at Skywave Tape Deck Repair Chicago area. I will most likely put a new motor into the deck.

Hi there. although my mk2 plays normally,sudenly i cannot hear it. i`ve checked wires and cartridge, what else it could be?


You need to check that the signal is getting to the amp. This can be done by removing the wires off the cartridge for the left and right channels. With the amp on touch the ends of the wires. If you hear a buzz the signal is getting to the amp and the cartridge is dead, but if you hear nothing and if the wiring is as you say good. Then the pre-amp in your amp for the cartridge has failed. This pre-amp will only affect the record deck and no other functions. If it has gone you can trace the wires from the sockets to it. Sometimes it will be on a seperate PC board. It's often a single IC that has failed. If you can replace it yourself be careful with the new one as these are often static sensitive chips.
PS the phono scokets on the amp sometimes buzz if you pull the plugs in & out!

Techics sl-1210s m3 turntable spins back on itself


You have a fault on the quartz-lock speed control electronics. It may be a simple fix, it may be not.

It will require specialist investigation. A Technics dealer should be able to advise you, and arrange shipping back to Technics for repair if you decide that is the best thing to do.
